I can not believe that I have been coming to dailystrength for almost 3 months and have just found this group. I kept thinking how there should be a young widows group! I guess that is just part of my floating through stuff since my husband died. Anyway, my husband died on May 5th, 2008 at the age of 26, we have two kids...my son turned 4 on 7/23 and my daughter will be two in October. My husbands death was completely unexpected, he just collapsed in our dining room due to a fatal arrythmia... his heart was enlarged, we are now finding out that it probably was from birth as his father was just diagnosed with the same thing. My kids are getting checked out on the 25th of this month by a pediatric cardiologist, it is very possible that they might have this as well and might have to have a defibrilater put in. Just lots of scary stuff going on right now and it still seems like the days are getting harder instead of easier. Anyhow, I am just so happy that I have found this place and am anxious to meet all of you and hope that we can help each other through this terrible journey.
